Another New Cherry from the University of Saskatchewan from the Romance series! Romeo is a rich dark red to black cherry, similar to Carmine Jewel, just a bit later in ripening. Ideal for fresh eating or processing. Also has been the best new variety for juice production! A true dwarf with mature size of 2 m (7 ft) tall–a bush-like habit. Does not sucker! Self-pollinating but better results are obtained when two varieties are planted. Approx. 30 cm (12 in).
Cherries not only contain significant levels of antioxidants, but they provide a unique combination of antioxidants that are not found in other fruits. The compounds in cherries act as potent antioxidants that appear to have anti-inflammatory benefits! Also excellent for arthritis!
